Welcome to the EU-Index

The EU-Integration-Index is the first to allow a measurement of economic integration for the certain members of the  European Union. It also enables us to rank the members regarding their integration into the EU.

The EU-Index is annually recorded and is both available for the old EU-15 (EU-15-Index) and for the EU-25 (EU-25-Index). Recently the EU-Index was also calculated in a slightly differrent form for the integration of Switzerland into the EU (EU-Switzerland-Index).

This shall give a quantifiable base for any economic or political discussion to allow a better assessment of economic developments or political decisions, which are ascribed to “the european integration”.
